BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Greg Dillon threw for three touchdowns and rushed for another as Grambling State defeated Jackson State 41-9 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday.
Dillon was 12-of-17 passing for 137 yards and one interception.
The Grambling State quarterback connected with Kiare Thompson for a 5-yard touchdown pass midway through the opening quarter, and then lofted a 39-yarder to Dante Cheek with 1:39 remaining in the first to give his team a 13-0 lead that held up until halftime.
That proved to be enough for the Grambling State (11-2, 7-0) defense, which forced five Jackson State (7-5, 6-1) turnovers.
Dillon connected with Thompson for another touchdown pass in the third quarter, David Stuckman had a 91-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Kenneth Anio Jr. closed out the scoring with an 85-yard interception return.
